I seem to be drinking lots of wine tonight like there's no tomorrow :omg:

OK some of you may have noticed I have been a little absent again ;-(

I am an avid Fan of the film "Paul" starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Directed by  Gregg Mottola. After sitting down with my two boys at Easter and watching Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and Paul. I had a long kinda dream and vision. The next thing I knew I was writing it all down.
As my English grammar is pretty bad (may be because I am Scottish lol) I got my friend Karina Lyburns to edit it for me.

I call it "First Class" www.jamiemacarthur.com

If you click on the link it will take you straight there.

If you haven't seen Paul, then please go out and buy it before watching this one ;-)

I hope you enjoy it.

P.S I think you should be over 15 before reading it lol

Hi Everyone I hope I find you all well ;-)

Sorry I have been away for a while, I had to run my business for a little time and then I ended up in hospital for a week with problems with my kidneys ;-( Unfortunately that also coincided with a birding trip to
the Shetland isles which I then had to cancel ;-( (so not many new photos). The good news is that I have just about made a full recovery and I have just completed a another property for my business, which means I will be back for a little time yay. ;-)

Oh and I just found out I got another DD - WOW I'm so honoured ;-) Thank you all again ;-)

I hope you din't miss me too much :omg:

Jamie :bighug:








I will try and catch up with all your lovely comments and requests

25th July 2012

A Commission for anyone interested 100 Euro or the equivalent value in Dollars or pounds

I need someone to make me a piece of artwork. It needs to be a 16:9 format as it is going to be used on my wedding web-site

It has to contain the following - A bride, a groom, a bride's maid, a church, a cake, an old car, flowers and old historic building and anything else to do with weddings.

I need you to use only royalty free images or your own drawings, sketches etc which I can use for commercial use. I need the image to be as dramatic and in the realms of fantasy .

I will need the image in about 2 weeks with each component of the image on a separate layer on photoshop

Full credit to you and a link to your web-site will be given

Please Note me if interested

Many thanks

Jamie

P.S feel free to pass this on

Hello Everyone ;-)

I am off for a couple of weeks now to do more birding ;-)

Thank you all for looking and  for all your lovely comments ;-) I have tried to answer every comment given which takes me a few hours everyday, but it is the least I can do ;-)

anyway hope to see you all when I get back ;-)

take care :hug:

Jamie







I took voluntary redundancy just over 10 months ago to follow a few of my dreams , one of which is bird photography!

I have been on here just over a month now and cannot believe the overwhelming response to my work ;-) It fills me with great joy to know that you like my photographs as much as I enjoy taking them. I had no idea so many of you would like them and I cannot thank you enough for your encouragement and kind comments. I do try my best to answer everybody but this is becoming exceedingly hard each day but I will do my best ;-)

There are loads of fantastic artists with incredible talent on here and I am trying my best to find you, but unfortunately time is always our enemy, and of course I think there are 30 million members registered

Soon it will be time for me to start shooting stuff again so again my time will be limited - but I'll do my best to keep up


My wish would be for someone to either find professional use for my work so I could do it full time and that would help pay my bills, or for someone to write a book and use my stuff for reference as writing is not my forte - or both ;-)

Alternatively you can always hire me for guided trips, tuition or even talks. I haven't worked out any rates yet but I'm sure I could ;-)

lastly a 'Big THANK YOU for the DD that shot has now has 2550 favourites in 8 weeks - incredible

I wish all the best to all my new friends

Jamie :hug:

All the best, Jamie! I wish you the best luck in the world with your birding, you have a clearly passionate eye for your art, and there is this feeling of joy in each of your photos that is very unique in wildlife photography. Your photos seem to capture a feeling of the personality of the bird you depict. I very much look forward to seeing your photos whenever you update, and eagerly anticipate where your travels will take you. :)

You're really too kind Jamie, to try and answer everyone. Most of the 'big ones' on here don't do that a lot. It's more important to take photo's and enjoy that than to answer every single message :) Except for this one, this one you can answer :P

You really hit it off with Deviantart :) I hope I'll be as good as you one day, I'm getting there photo by photo :)
